Tesla is increasing recruitment with business development manager and recruiters advertised for on its website, a media report said.

Reuters noted the job announcements came as demand and interest for EVs in Thailand picks up due to concerns over high energy prices and with government consumer incentives.

Nearly 20 Bangkok based jobs including a home charging developer were advertised on the website and the position of a charging infrastructure lead was posted on LinkedIn.

Other vacancies were for vehicle technicians, customer service and a parts adviser, the news agency said.

Tesla did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

Thailand was not expected to be a production site for Tesla for now, though the government has been promoting sales of EVs and there is speculation the company might set up official showrooms, Reuters said.

Thailand is Asia’s fourth largest auto assembly and export hub for companies like Toyota and Honda.

It produces about 1.5 million to 2 million vehicles annually, of which about half of which are exported.

Domestic demand for EVs is a crucial part of a Thai government strategy to preserve its status as a top regional automaker. The government is targeting production of 725,000 EVs a year, or 30% of total vehicle output, by 2030.

Meanwhile, Indonesian President Joko Widodo in August urged Tesla to manufacture its cars and batteries, in his country, the Reuters report noted.
